Great! Thank you MedKev!!
I've found a Foto between my Fathers Documents showing him with Prince Philip in Sheerness.When I've
worked out how to Post Photographs I will post it here.
I can remember that he told me that it was taken during the opening of the new Pilot Station but I had
forgotten the Date.
Thanks again!

Martin.

Ignore the above, I found this for you:

Says 1982 so I guess thats the answer to one of your questions.

I don't know, but if you can't find the answer then maybe contact the Medway Ports Authority, it's worth a try.

Hello.
HRH Prince Philip was at the opening of the New Pilot Station in Sheerness sometime in the end 70's or 80's.
Does anybody know the exact date the opening took place?
Tried on the www but had no luck :'(
Did he just come for the Opening or did he visit the Port as well?

Martin.
